Now There’s Wendy Davis Nail Art

Texas manicurist encourages women to don some political polish.

Give yourself a hand, Meghann Rosales. And another. The 30-year-old owner of Austin, Texas, Nails Y’all salon is picking up on an issue faster than her polish can dry. After painting a minuscule homage to filibuster-extraordinaire and Texas Sen. Wendy Davis on her nails, she posted it to Tumblr and it quickly went viral. Now Rosales is calling for women to unite against Gov. Rick Perry, who is set to fight against the SB5 bill, which would ban abortion after 20 weeks, during a special session on July 1. Rosales planned a fundraiser at her salon for this weekend, where she is offering politically themed nail decals with Davis’s face, pink sneakers, “Hands Off” nail tats,and yellow roses. The salon’s Facebook page announces “Attention Austin babes: show your support for Texas women’s health by finger banging Rick Perry!” Rosales plans to give half the proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
